This is an epic song about loss across the stars, as sad as space is big. The beautiful line "We had loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night" is taken from the poem The Old Astronomer by Sarah Williams.
She said all of this won't add up in the end
Because you and I have never been the same
And I said I never thought this would all be at an end
And I think she said she thought about the same
Now the antimatter's charging up again
And I'll leave this yellow dirt and dust and wind
And I'll go back to Earth which wasn't my best friend
And I'll tell her here on Venus it must end
And if I can get back all right
I'll send a message to her tonight
Saying our sun will die
And that she should grant me this last time
And come to Earth to die
In the security between my arms
Now she's alone and to her we're all dead
And now she knows just how lonely space can be
She never made it, she never made it
And I'm to blame...it...it all went wrong...it...
It shouldn't have hurt that much
By now she would have been here between my arms
And now I'm alone and might as well be dead
And make me pay for my red giant lie
And now she's there standing at the door
White light floods the hall; she's been here before
This step has made her so alive...
She's more than i could be there now but...
"We had loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night"
I want to be there
I want to see her
I think I deserve
Just as much as you do too
But it's not fair
She won't be with anyone but me
And I know and feel the same
And now I know just how lonely she must be
